"This is a personal favourite (MGaceman), if ETS2 ran well on the old laptop, this wouldn't get played. Worth gwtting for old (5 years) PC's."

“Easy to pick up and play; well detailed truck cabin, good fun to drive around Europe.”
4/5 – Macworld

About This Game

The original Euro Truck Simulator - the game which has become the classic of the genre and is still relevant today. The first truck simulation game in a European setting, with European long haul trucks!

Drive freight from London to Rome to Berlin to Madrid to Prague - and many more cities - in realistic vehicles. Faithful reproduction of driving trucks on the European road. Pick up a variety of cargoes, and deliver them on time! Highly realistic, meticulously detailed models based on real trucks. Actual working instruments such as flashing indicators, temperature and low fuel warning lights, wipers, and a full set of gauges. Pan the camera around the cabin, just as if you were actually sitting at the wheel.

Note: Unofficial "mods" are not supported by the Mac OS version of the game! (file formats are not compatible with Windows PC version)

Bought in a bundle, this is worth the buck or two spent especially if you have an older PC to play it on. ETS1 was a great idea and has been improved with the release of ETS2. Pros and cons of this game...

Pros: Graphics not bad for its day and you can play a short run in 10-15 mins. While getting in accidents, speeding, and running red lights gets you penalized, you can also play the jerk driver cutting other drivers off and hogging two lanes (which is almost a necessity if driving via keyboard). Hint for new players--get your hazardous cargo cert ASAP so you can make more money faster.

Cons: A careful study of the road map shows this game was unfinished. Back roads all over Poland, a few in Germany, and none anywhere else. When driving around, you see several overpasses that were likely intended to be used for backroads, but were left unconnected to anything. There are also loads of no-go zones in the cities, where AI vehicles can drive, but you cannot. Another minor complaint; the physics of the truck in a cloverleaf turn allow for too much drift and jackknifing the truck is easy to do, even at low speeds. I have learned to go real slow through these.

I am looking forward to playing ETS2, but if you have an older PC and/or a light wallet, you should give this game a whirl.

I don't know why, but this game makes me feel pretty good.
Maybe because its not that tense.
Or the fact that you are not running around shooting things like most games these days.
I am definetly getting the second one when I have enough money.
And yes, I would recommend it to anyone who wants a kinda-relaxing game instead of a tense game like first person shooters.

This is an amazing game, and i recommend this game for people who can't afford the 2 or for people who are Mac users (i'm a mac user too) , although if you can get the 2 with a windows it is much better. I hope the creators of this game will make a Mac version for Euro Truck Simulator 2. PS: This is still a really good game for its time, hope you like it as much as i do.

*25 nov 2014, 72%, Good made game, simulator gameplay where you delivered goods. Can be played 100% with mouse and keyboard or 20% controller / 80% MK. I think the only thing you can mapped to controller is driving, but it's good to do it, but not essential, it's not like you will drive at 250 km/hrs. This is a easy smooth game to play a 1 or 2 hours beetwen more challenging game, because like any simulator, it's a little bit addictive, you always want to do one more thing. Just an estimate, I tink the game have around many hours of gameplay, if you want to do everything. When finish, I don't see any replayability, unless you really like simulator game.

If you put the cursor on the game in Steam, and click manual on the right of the screen, it's pretty well made. There is also a few guides and walktrough made, but I don't think that you will need a guide, it's a pretty basic game. If you want to see the achievements list, go at www. gamefaqs.com where they have really good walktrough for almost any game and it's free. You have to look under cheats, but this just a list of the game achievements.

When I score game I always compare the game to the best game I have played overall, and I also compare it with the same kind of game that I have played. I start with Bethesda Elder Scroll Skyrim that I scored 95%(best game that I played for myself, and it's a game that have everything excellent, some peoples say that you cannot compare every game to Skyrim, but I saw Skyrim and it's 4 DLC at $ 13.99 on Steam, 75% off, even if I bought it full price when it went out. That meant at that price that every game can be compared to Skyrim), and I go down from there. For the scoring I look at : Control, Gameplay, Lenght of game, Story, Well made difficulty level, Music, Graphics, Voice acting, and finally Sound effect. I also like when I a play game, to have a good fun experience, and that also count in the scoring.

SCORING : 90+ Excellent / 80+ Really Good / 70+ Good /60+ Missed 1 or 2 thing to be good / 60- Missed many thing to be good. This is why I Gave that score.

It's too bland and vanila to be fun and not accurate enough to be a simulator.

- Damage doesnt show on your vehicle
- It takes 5 minutes to drive from London to Manchester

OMG why did I even play this game.. if you like collecting stamps and train spotting this game is for you

If Euro Truck Sim 2 was out, I would reccomend this game, but at this point it is litterally a dumbed down version of euro truck sim two. Near same mechanics, worse graphics and a smaller world. No reason to buy this game unless your computer REALLY cant handle euro truck sim 2, which isn't likely.

I love Euro Truck Simulator 2 its great buy that one instead. This is game feels like a Beta for ETS2. The steering is terrible. The towns are far apart and the the scenary in between towns is dull and boring. Also add to that no GPS, no auto parking the load and the diesel trucks that you drive around feel like toys. Its just not very much fun to play. Buy Euro Truck Simulator 2 and skip this one.

Why do I like it? I have no idea. It's just a mindless task of driving a truck. You are driving a bloody truck through Europe. It's strangly addicting. If you're wicked bored and want something to pass time with, get this. If you want an exciting game with fast paced content and excitment, skip it.

I like to play this game when I have nothing else to do, and feel like burning a few hours. I mean, I could play this game forever. While the graphics are not top of the line, they suffice in a game that has a great driving engine, albeit several years old. The missions are simple, yet require some degree of concentration. The tiredness aspect is interesting. All in all, it is a VERY good simulator game.

Rating: 8/10

Necessity: Must-have for simulator lovers, reccommended as a library staple for everyone else.
